‘Modi must apologise to TS over bifurcation promises’

Must read


Industries Minister KT Rama Rao demanded that Prime Minister Narendra Modi should apologise to the people of Telangana for failing to fulfil the commitments made to the state under the Andhra Pradesh Reorganisation Act.

He said the Prime Minister, during his upcoming visit to Warangal, should explain why he failed to honour the commitments.

KTR, as the minister is known, said that Modi should tell the people of Telangana why he did not deliver on the promise to set up a rail coach factory in Kazipet. Instead of a factory to manufacture rail coaches, a facility to repair rail coaches is being established, he said, while addressing a public meeting in Mahbubabad on Friday after launching the distribution of Podu lands.

The Prime Minister is scheduled to visit Telangana on July 12 to lay the foundation stone for the Railway Coach Periodic Overhauling facility in Kazipet.

He also slammed Modi for ‘discriminating’ against the state. He said Modi refused a rail coach factory to Telangana but established one in Gujarat at a cost of Rs 21,000 crore.

“One rule for Telangana and another for Gujarat is wrong. The Prime Minister represents the country and not just Gujarat,” he said.

KTR said the Prime Minister should also tell people why he failed to establish a Tribal University in Telangana as promised in the AP Reorganisation Act. He said that although the state government allotted 360 acres in Mulugu for the university, the Centre did not establish the university.

He also wanted to know what happened to the Centre’s commitment to set up a steel factory at Bayyaram.

KTR, who is also the BRS’ Working President, urged people not to believe the “false promises” of the Congress. He said the party and its dynasty which duped people for 50 years is once again trying to mislead them for power.

He appealed to the people to once again vote for the BRS so that Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao can continue his welfare measures for the poor.
